It seems that Andrea Rossi is turning an increasing amount of his attention and time towards the electricity-generating E-Cat SKL these days. He has explained that it is still a work in progress and that they need to overcome certain obstacles before it can be ready as a commercial product.
The exact nature of the problems they are dealing with have not been specified, but Rossi stated this weekend that he is preparing for an important series of tests starting next Saturday (May 15th) with a new level of artificial intelligence:

I think in this period you and your team are focused mainly on the presentation of the Ecat SKLed on November 25th; are you also working on the development of the SKL ?

Absolutely yes: next Saturday I will receive components for an elaboration of the artificial intelligence that should give us a strong contribution and accelerate its presentation: the tests will be made next Saturday and Sunday. I am optimist, but the experiment is very difficult, Very intriguing, though.
I asked some questions about exactly what they were hoping to achieve with the new AI tests:

Is the purpose of the AI system you will test next week:
1. To improve the stability of the SKL?
2. To make a more regular electrical output from the SKL?
3. To help with charging of batteries?
4. To increase the COP of the SKL?

1 and 2
It’s interesting to me that Rossi comments above that these tests could “accelerate the presentation” of the SKL. Rossi has stated that the SKL will be presented in 2022, but Rossi has now opened the door to the possibility that the presentation could be sooner. Gerard McEk asked him whether there would be any chance of showing it at the November 25 presentation later this year. Rossi replied: ” this depends on what we will see during the weekend of the next week.”
